The senator’s daughter, Amanda, had been visiting with classmates in a private community, and had been a passenger in a golf cart that was involved in the crash. She had been listed as in "fair" condition at a Miami-area intensive care unit on Sunday.
According to media reports, Romney’s motorcade pulled over in Central Florida around 7 p.m. to let Rubio off. The senator left in a police car.
Top officials from both parties – including House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) and Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (Fla.), the chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee – tweeted their condolences to Rubio.
“Senator and Mrs. Rubio are grateful for all the outpouring of support and prayers,” Conant had said Saturday in a statement.
